A mesmerising fluid cloud murmuration of starlings, an 
ethereal performance in deepening winter twilight,
increased safety in numbers, seeking a sheltered roost for
 the approaching cool ebony velvet night.

The distant sound of calling Canada geese heading inland as
  they fly in a vacillating elongated V overhead,
the loud territorial booming call of a camouflaged rare 
 bittern echoes from a whispering marshland reed bed.

The pellucid undulating melody of a skylark emanating from 
open sky, a timeless pleasure to hear,
watching foraging sandpipers with distinguishing elongated 
beaks in a tidal pond at Minsmere.

The array of wet and dry habitats and windswept pebbled
 beach at Titchwell’s RSPB coastal reserve,
a managed salt and freshwater wetland designed to suit
the differing needs of the birds and wildlife it serves.

The marsh harriers’s elaborate springtime tumbling courtship 
switchback display, avian choreography so high,
gently alighting on the luxuriant mauve carpet of flowering 
sea lavender, the ephemeral tortoiseshell butterfly.

Twice daily wading redshanks, godwits and sandpipers patiently
wait for the tidal water to recede,
the ebbing water reveals pristine mud filled with snails and 
crustaceans allowing a wide variety of birds to feed.

The stylish Art Deco avocet, an elegant avian society emblem
busily feeding in a brackish coastal lagoon,
indigo black silhouettes of resting geese on a silver tinted marsh 
are outlined by a lustrous full moon.

Smooth dark silted water is embellished with concentric 
ripples created by singular crystal droplets of rain,
the lonely transient call of the speckled curlew with a curved 
 beak echoes along a deserted beach plain.

 A prodigious flock of calling and squeaking geese leave the
 shadowed marsh as one to feed at first light,
the muted rhythmical beat of their patterned wing feathers
flapping overhead silently conveys their flight.

A kaleidoscopic range of native and migrant birds species, 
colours and songs, changing with each season of the year,
the joy of birdwatching is becoming part of the surrounding 
landscape, with wildlife and birds so near .
